Come now, do not cry

I will lay thee down

And whisper sweet lullabies

In your ear

I will hold you

Close to me, and protect you

From the cold, cruel world

I will embrace you, and love you

For the rest of your days

And give you sweet slumber

In all the many ways, I could offer

Close your eyes, and go unto sleep

And if you wake, in the dark of night

Know in the shadows

I will be watching, waiting for you

In sweet torment, with twisted eyes, smiling
